KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Needing a win to keep their MLS Cup Playoffs chance alive, D.C. United allowed a Claudio Lopez penalty kick in second-half stoppage time to force a 2-2 draw in front of 10,385 fans at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.

With the result, D.C. United finished the regular season on 40 points (9-8-13) and their playoff chances depend on other playoff-vying teams to also tie [update: Seattle's 2-1 win over Dallas officially eliminated United from the playoffs]. Kansas City finished its season 8-13-9 (33 points).

KANSAS CITY -- A segundos de sumar tres puntos de oro en el CommunityAmerica Ballpark de Kansas City, D.C. United se complicó solo con un penal de Fred en los descuentos que les permitió a los Wizards rescatar un empate 2-2 que dejó en duda la clasificación del elenco capitalino a los playoffs.

De esta forma, D.C. sumó 40 puntos y deberá esperar a los demás resultados de la última fecha de esta temporada regular 2009 para saber si podrá asistir a la fiesta final de la MLS.

Estuvo cerca de convertirse en el primer equipo en la historia de la MLS en ganar en suelo mexicano, pero al final el D.C. United tuvo que conformarse con un empate 1-1 ante Toluca, dejando en duda su supervivencia en la Liga de Campeones CONCACAF.

Chris Pontius abrió la esperanza para los visitantes en el Estadio Nemesio Diaz con un golazo al minuto 6, pero un penal a favor de los dueños de casa a los 62' le permitió a Israel López decretar la igualdad definitiva en el último partido de ambos dentro del Grupo B.

D.C. United failed to make history Tuesday night. Their chance to become the first Major League Soccer to win on Mexican soil was spoiled by Israel Lopez's second-half penalty kick. D.C. still managed a 1-1 draw against Toluca at Estadio Nemesio Diez, but United will have to wait until Thursday to learn if that's enough to secure passage into the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals.

Major League Soccer teams are now 0-17-2 in competitive matches in Mexico.

WASHINGTON -- Con la obligación de ganar para mantenerse con vida en la lucha por la postemporada, el D.C. United cumplió la tarea al vencer a nada menos que el puntero absoluto de la MLS, Columbus Crew, por 1-0 en el Estadio RFK.

De esta forma, el elenco capitalino puso fin a una racha negativa de tres derrotas consecutivas y, aun más importante, sigue soñando con logar un cupo a la Liguilla.

WASHINGTON -- With their playoff hopes hanging in the balance, D.C. United snapped a three-game losing streak with a hard-fought 1-0 win against the Columbus Crew in the midst of a cold drizzle at RFK Stadium on Saturday night.

The visitors enjoyed more of the ball and created more attacking danger for most of the evening. But United made the most of one of the game's only bright spots, a slick combination between Luciano Emilio and Boyzzz Khumalo, to notch an early goal which they defended grimly for the balance of the match.

Chivas USA dio un paso gigantesco hacia los playoffs y dejó prácticamente eliminado al D.C. United al derrotar 2-0 al cuadro capitalino en el Estadio RFK.

Dos recientes adquisiciones del Rebaño, el brasileño Maicon Santos y el mexicano Jesús "El Gringo" Padilla, fueron decisivos en los goles rojiblancos frente a un United que perdió su tercer partido liguero al hilo, todos en casa.

WASHINGTON -- With their playoff dreams hanging in the balance, D.C. United urgently needed a victory over Chivas USA on their home ground on Saturday night.

But a nightmare was what they got instead, as they lost the midfield battle to their West Coast visitors all evening and fell two goals behind before falling a man short thanks to Ben Olsen's astonishing ejection, eventually crashing to a 2-0 loss that leaves them languishing on the margins of the MLS postseason picture.
